"An inspirational book about transformation and outstanding message for children about change, beautifully illustrated.
A metaphor to guide us all in uncertain times.
There is no doubt we are going through massive changes on this planet. And change can be scary – even for adults – but especially for children, who have not lived long enough to see the process through and emerge on the other side.
Lindsey Frank has created a delightful book to help children (and adults) navigate difficult times and understand them in light of the transformational process. Using the metaphor of the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly, she leads you through the many feelings that arise in the midst of change. The graphics are beautiful and the message simple, yet profound: It’s OK to feel scared and uncertain, but something special is happening that will turn out better than you could ever imagine.”
-Anodea Judith, author of Wheels of Life and The Global Heart Awakens

"I enjoyed the practical (easy-to-follow) strategies to help kids & all of us through various challenges. I like when books teach along with the story, like yours where it combines fiction & non-fiction."
